The color is a deep, dark red. The nose exhibits earthy flavors with notes of cedar, tobacco and nice aromatics of blackberry fruit. The wine boasts flavors of coffee, chocolate, tar and smokiness with loads of texture. This medium to full-bodied wine is an explosion in the glass with a long, ripe finish.
